Has anybody from the UK who pre-ordered with Game had their payment taken yet?

 

We got that email last week, but they still haven't taken payment yet and it seems to be getting a bit close to release date now.

Thanks for posting this thread, Twisted. I've also not been charged any payment.

I'm slightly concerned because the debit card I used has now been replaced with a newer one, so I fear the payment will bounce. I sent Game an email on Friday asking to change my payment menthod and no response yet.

That's exactly what happened to me, I've updated my card and worried that they will mess up my order. I've set it to pay through PayPal though, so hopefully it will go smoothly.

I had never thought of doing it through PayPal. Would've made things easier!

 

Anyway, I just got an email response from GAME in regards to changing payment method. They said the following:

"However if your order is a preorder we will be able to amend the payment details without cancelling the order. However given the sensitive nature of the information being provided you will need to contact customer services on our Webchat service."

Unfortunately, they did not answer my question on the possibility of the pre-order getting cancelled due to an expired payment method, but at least this confirms (for anyone wishing to change their details) on how to do so.

That's pretty weird. In my opinion, that's not really early at all. I was under the impression that it'd be taken out today or tomorrow, hence why I got to the bank as soon as possible today, to transfer money over.

I had this problem with Borderlands 2 a while back and emailed them, they only take the money when the item is actually sent to stop any confusion. I don't think they'd have sent off peoples copies of GTA V yet :p wait a couple of days before release, then check.

That's what I thought. Under any normal circumstance, I'd expect them to take it on Friday, but since they made a big deal out of taking payment early, I was expecting to have paid them by now.

 

Oh well, at least I know that the payments haven't gone through yet, and it's not just me who's in this situation  :lol:

Looks like several people were wrong. GAME just took my monies. It's a good thing actually, I was tempted to spend it on cigs.

Maybe you should try and phone... I haven't used GAME for a couple of years now so I don't know if they have that facility... but if it's not going to work out then you need to get the cash out and head for a 24H supermarket/games shop ;)

I've had mine pre ordered at GAME for a few weeks and no payment had been taken as of yet, however my Shopto order has been placed, paid for and processed already.

Most people are in the same boat mate, people who say they've been charged? well.. take that how you want but the majority have not been charged including a few of my friends who've preordered from game also. You're safe don't worry.

My payment was taken by PayPal so that may be why it appears to have been taken earlier.

Yeah just got charged but I must have  accidentally preordered it twice, funny thing is they billed me for the non discounted preoder even though the version with the discount was ordered months earlier, nice one GAME....

I just checked my email to find that game have cancelled my preoder all the way back from May 24th.
No idea why they've done this, has this happened to anyone else?
